Genderqueer ex-nun nerd comic Kelli Dunham is premiering an all new show and this time she’s concentrating on the things that keep her sane (as much as that claim can be made) therapy, cats and sex (not necessarily in that order).
MORGAN GOODE OPENS!
MORE ABOUT KELLI
Kelli Dunham (kellidunham.com) is everyone’s favorite ex-nun genderqueer nerd comic. Kelli was one of Velvet Park Magazine’s 25 Significant Queer Women of 2011 and author of four books of humorous non-fiction, including two children’s books being used by Sonlight conservative home schooling association in their science curriculum.
Kelli has performed nationwide at LGBT pride events (Seattle, Long Beach CA, Rhode Island, Baltimore, Atlanta), colleges (University of Delaware, Penn State University, Smith College, Temple University, Colorado State University) and even the occasional livestock auction. Both her comedy CDs, “I am NOT a 12 Year Old Boy” and “Almost Pretty” are on regular rotation on Sirius Satellite Radio’s mainstream comedy station and she has appeared on Showtime and the Discovery Network.
Kelli was the winner of the 2007 Fresh Fruit Festival Award of Distinction for stand up comedy, although she has never before or since been called distinguished. Kelli recently returned from a 12 day, 10 city tour of the Southern States via Megabus which included a 2 AM encounter with a pick-up truck full of homophobes in a Montgomery Alabama Speedy Check Cashing Parking Lot and an even scarier encounter with Sarah Palin.
Proceeds from the show will go to help finish Freak of Nurture: Why Is The Fat One Always Angry, Kelli’s third CD.
HEY DO YOU WANT YOUR CAT TO BE PART OF THE PUBLICITY FOR THE SHOW? EMAIL KELLIDUNHAM@GMAIL.COM WITH A PHOTO OF YOUR CAT AND WHY THEY ARE AWESOME AND/OR ANNOYING!
I supposes I should make the same offer for people who love their therapist as well, huh?

ABOUT MORGAN GOODE
A storyteller and photographer by trade, Morgan Goode has yet to find a way to make money for herself so she’s forced to have a day job doing online fundraising for non profits. She also has a savior complex and can never say no to a queer in need so the list of LGBT orgs she volunteers for is endless and she sits on the boards of BinetUSA and Queers for Economic Justice. One day she is going to make good on her threat to do a photo project on white tourists photographing homeless people of color. Her favorite pastimes include subverting the gaze, making people uncomfortably aware of their privilege and petting kitties. Goode is also an editor at large for Prettyqueer.com
And in addition, we’ll have info on CAT ADOPTION! Of course:
